Weapon Shop de Omasse to be released this month


Coming February 20th

When the Guild 01 and 02 Collections dropped overseas, we were missing one game -- Weapon Shop De Omasse. We already reported that the lack of a localization was due to a large amount of text, but eventually I guess the juice was worth the squeeze, and it was announced for a worldwide release. Billed as a "comedic RPG," Omasse will be released on February 20th on the 3DS eShop. read
